Brushes, Surgical, Bone, Acetabular

Definition : Bone surgery brushes designed to prepare (i.e., clean and debride) the large cavity of the coxa, where the head of the femur articulates (i.e., the acetabulum), for application of bone cement. These brushes typically consist of a flexible, twisted, metallic (e.g., stainless steel) wire with bristles (e.g., nylon) radiating from a shaft that is conformed as a loop at the distal end; the wire is attached to a handle or, more frequently, conformed for use with a manual or powered handpiece at the proximal end. Acetabular brushes are typically used with simultaneous application of irrigation after broaching or reaming the cavity; they are used mainly in prosthetic orthopedic procedures (e.g., hip replacement).
